What if i was drinking a pitcher of Miller light? (4-16oz glasses)

Does that equal to four 1.5oz shots of Jack Daniels (80 proof)?

uhh use a calculator, it's not that hard to find out the alcohol precentage.

5 shots. I think it's 1.5oz 80 proof spirits, 6oz wine(12%?), and 12oz beer(4%?).

funny thing is that i've drank a whole pitcher of miller light by myself in an hr w/little effects.

I just drank 4 shots of Jack in an hr, and i KNOW i'm in no condition to drive.

Both times i ate lunch right b4 the drinking

It's a simple math and googling:

Miller Lite is a 4.2% abv pale lager brand sold by Miller Brewing
Tennessee Whiskey • 40% Alcohol by volume

So approximately Jack is 10x potent than Miller Lite.
1.5 oz shot of Jack is equal to 15 oz glass of Miller Lite.
4 shots = 4 glasses of Miller Lite

Approximately, as I've rounded down 1oz for Miller and 0.2% abv difference.

Liquid goes a loooooooooooooooong way as a filler. If you spaced out 4 shots of shot of Jack in an hour (every 15 mins) and drank 4 glasses of water, it'd be essentially same as drinking beer.

This.

The reason 4 pints of beer in your stomach will have a different effect than 4 shots in an hour, is the time it takes for digesting. The extra liquid means it takes a little longer for all the alcohol to be absorbed and processed.

So in reality, 4 pints in an hour will not equal 4 pints worth of alcohol digested in an hour. 4 pints in an hour will be closer to drinking 4 pints worth in 1.5 or 2 hours, which won't result in the same BAC as by that time the first amount of alcohol will already have begun the slow process of being processed out.
